Gaming PC build Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition, Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz, 10GB performance review

A PC gaming machine that puts together a Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz processor, a Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition GPU and 10GB system memory will be able to play 498 games from the top 1000 recommended requirements. The PC could increase the number of games it can run at recommended requirements to 567 if it upgraded its bottleneck component, the Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz.

Hardware performance for these gaming components can be compared to one of todays most popular games, Red Dead Redemption 2. To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition you can enjoy Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 36 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 50 FPS, and at Medium 75 FPS and then on Low it would return 95 FPS. The Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 47 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - To summarise, we feel that with the Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition you can enjoy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 36 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 50 FPS, and at Medium 75 FPS and then on Low it would return 95 FPS. The Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 47 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Halo: Reach - To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding Halo: Reach frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 68 FPS, 1440p will get 113 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 149 FPS. Based around the Radeon R9 390 MSI Gaming 8GB Edition launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $2.21, 1440p frames cost $2.91 each and then the 4K costs $4.84 per frame.
